NO MAN'S LAND

David Byars - New York, NY

9:00pm FRIDAY SEPTEMBER 15, 2017 - ROSS RAGLAND THEATER



Mature content: language


Join us for our opening night, exclusive feature film, the Oregon premiere of "No Man's Land" from Director/Cinematographer David Byars of New York, NY, and produced by Oscar-nominated Morgan Spurlock.

With unfettered access, Byars gives a detailed, on-the-ground account of the 2016 standoff between protestors occupying Oregon's Malheur National Wildlife Refuge and federal authorities. After the leaders of this occupation put out a call to arms via social media, the Malheur occupiers quickly bolstered their numbers with a stew of right-wing militia, protestors, and onlookers.

What began as a protest to condemn the sentencing of two ranchers quickly morphed into a catchall for those eager to register their militant antipathy toward the federal government. During the 41-day siege, the filmmakers were granted remarkable access to the inner workings of the insurrection as the occupiers went about the daily business of engaging in an armed occupation.

NO MAN'S LAND documents the occupation from inception to its dramatic demise and tells the story of those on the inside of this movement - the ideologues, the disenfranchised, and the dangerously quixotic, attempting to uncover what draws Americans to the edge of revolution.

The film will be preceded by a brief introduction to this year's Klamath Independent Film Festival


Runtime: 1 hour 22 min. + festival introduction
